Alex Jones: Arrest Rep. Peter King,
Not NSA Whistleblower Edward Snowden
Democrats and GOP vote to collect your DNA
The bi-partisan march to a Big Brother Police State continues.
It is a myth that Liberals & Conservatives do not work together.
In a move lawmakers say takes a “sensible approach to fighting crime,” New Jersey Senators approved a bill that would require DNA testing for people convicted of a disorderly persons offense.
The legislation is only expected to affect a small percentage of offenders but we all know it’s only a matter of time before the DNA of every citizen in America is entered in the Federal database.
The New Jersey bill is co-sponsored by state Sen. Nicholas Sacco, D-North Bergen, and Paul Sarlo, D-Wood-Ridge. In the 40 member State Senate, Liberal Democrats and Conservative Republicans joined forces by a vote of 35-3 to approve the bill.
DNA would be required from anyone convicted of a “more serious disorderly persons offense,” such as domestic violence, shoplifting, prostitution and some drug-related crimes reports Infowars News.
“DNA is one of the most powerful tools we have to identify perpetrators and exonerate those falsely accused of crimes,” Sacco said. “A more expansive DNA database will enable us to solve investigations with greater speed and accuracy. By adding certain serious disorderly persons offenses … this legislation only affects a small percentage of offenders and takes a sensible approach to fighting crime.”
Currently, the federal government and 28 states authorize the practice of collecting DNA samples from people arrested in connection with serious crimes.
In a Supreme Court ruling earlier this month arguing the legality of a Maryland state law authorizing warrantless DNA collection from people who had been arrested but not yet convicted, Justice Anthony M. Kennedy wrote for the majority, “taking and analyzing a cheek swab of the arrestee’s DNA, is like fingerprinting and photographing, a legitimate police booking procedure that is reasonable under the Fourth Amendment.”
However, Justice Antonin Scalia wrote a stern dissenting opinion, arguing that the Fourth Amendment forbids searches without reasonable suspicion to gather evidence about an unrelated crime.
“Make no mistake about it: because of today’s decision, your DNA can be taken and entered into a national database if you are ever arrested, rightly or wrongly, and for whatever reason..Solving crimes is a noble objective,” he concluded, “but it occupies a lower place in the American pantheon of noble objectives than the protection of our people from suspicionless law enforcement searches. The Fourth Amendment must prevail.”
According to Justice Scalia, “DNA testing as it is actually practiced is to solve cold cases, not to identify the suspect in custody.”
